Do you think North Korea is going to launch a rocket to the moon on Sunday?

You know, I called NASA up and was like "Hey, you gotta strap a pregnant lady on top of the rocket" and they just laughed at me.

WHO IS LAUGHING NOW, NASA?

Hey Wraith, are worried about Starship HLS at all? The timeline for Artemis 3 seems very aggressive and HLS is dependent on multiple launches and in-orbit refueling of a vessel that hasn't launched yet.

At work right now and have some thoughts that should probably not be shared while using a NASA computer, lol. Will comment on that when I get back home.

Okay so the whole 2025 date for Artemis 3 is never gonna happen. That was a ridiculous goal set in the Trump administration without any real input from NASA in the first place. We don't have the funding to make that happen. That is regardless of what is going on with Starship HLS.

The other thing going on there is just generally SpaceX's overall culture. They work very well when it is just them. If we are saying "Hey deliver our astronauts to the ISS on your own vehicles", they get that done. HLS requires a lot of interfaces though. A lot of complexities requiring multiple organizations to work together for a successful integrated product. That is the part that worries me with them. They have very lofty and ambitious schedules. And I've reviewed some of their technical documents before for their NASA support stuff -- they are written like they were authored by a freshman year student writing his first lab report for Physics I. Kind of weird that they would deliver technical details to their customer in that state.

Starship in general just seems like Musk's ego without check. I obviously want it to succeed, but man, getting falcon heavy human-rated seems like it would have been better

Did you see the Hindenburg whining about a little hydrogen issue? No way! They delivered those passengers to New Jersey on schedule.
